EarthBound 64

December 8th, 2013 | EarthBound 64, Smash Bros., Uncommon Knowledge | 8 Comments

renstimpy1 sent this a little while back and it somehow wound up in my spam folder. I’m glad I found it, though! Hey Mato! Today I was browsing the Cutting Room Floor and went to a article on Super Smash Bros Melee. When I got down to the “reflections” section of the article I saw that a old screenshot of Osohe Castle from EB64 Is being used as a reflection for several trophies in-game....Read More »

It’s been quite a while, but at last I’ve updated my MOTHER 3 translation notes with a new section! This time, we take a look at the search for Hinawa and everything leading up to the famous Flint freakout scene! Besides actual translation notes, you’ll also find tidbits that connect with the Nintendo 64 version of the game, little-known text in the game, a connection with offic...Read More »

Back in 2000 (holy crap it’s already 13 years later), when the Nintendo 64 version of MOTHER 3 – aka EarthBound 64 – was cancelled, Satoru Iwata, Shigeru Miyamoto, and Shigesato Itoi sat down and talked all about the cancellation. It was then posted online over the course of like 15 pages. There was so much text that nobody ever really fully translated the discussion… unti...Read More »

ChocoZuri sent me this a little while back: Hey, Mato! I have here scans from an old MOTHER 3 post-Spaceworld preview that I believe has not made it to this site. It’s not big on any new screenshots (Despite a clearer shot of Osohe Castle), but it seems to be a little more in-depth on the storyline & battle system than anything, along with some side-notes from the publishers as well. N...Read More »

Super translator Chewy recently translated a very big and very interesting interview with Shigeru Miyamoto and Shigesato Itoi back before the Nintendo 64 Disk System was released in Japan and while it still seemed like the next big thing for Nintendo. There’s a ton of stuff they cover, including various things relating to MOTHER 3/EarthBound 64 that not even I’ve heard before, so give...Read More »

A few years back, before MOTHER 3 was released, I updated the EarthBound 64 section of Starmen.Net with everything I could find, including all the videos I could find. You can see them here. Apparently there was some EarthBound 64 video stuff during a video shown at E3 in 1998. It’s only like four seconds long, but I’d never seen it before so I thought I’d share it! In it, we se...Read More »

A Swedish EarthBound fan by the name of Anders recently sent me a big ol’ PDF file containing scans of magazines that covered EarthBound and EarthBound-related stuff. Here’s what Anders says: The first two pages contain a (US import) review of Earthbound from the magazine Super POWER, #11 1995. […] A two-reviewer system was used and, as can be seen in the two boxes left of the fi...Read More »

The other day good ol’ pk_stan scanned in some old Famitsu magazines with interviews about EarthBound 64 in it – interviews that we’ve never actually *seen* before. I’ll post them one of these days, for now I wanted to highlight some stuff about enemies in the game. If you followed EarthBound 64’s rise and fall back in the day, then you’ve probably seen the foll...Read More »

The other day, when I was working on my newcomer’s guide to the EarthBound/Mother series and was looking for a good EarthBound 64 screenshot, I decided I’d use one of the many screenshots that Itoi posted when he announced the cancellation. I finally went with this one: Back in 2000 when EarthBound 64 was canceled, everyone on Starmen.Net was like, “OMG! Onett’s in EarthBo...Read More »

Once again the flood of Itoi interview translation continues as Chewy blasts through her NaNoTraMo stuff! This time we’re treated to an interview in the January 31, 1997 issue of Famitsu. In it, Shigesato Itoi and Satoru Iwata discuss stuff from the ill-fated Nintendo 64 version of MOTHER 3. Here’s an excerpt: Nagata Moving on, what’s the deal with the battles that Itoi’s always ra...Read More »
